Fascinated by cemeteries

It occurred to me that I have a somewhat morbid obsession: I can’t help but visit each cemetery I encounter when I’m abroad. For instance, a few weeks back I was in Edinburgh and visited three different graveyards in only four days.

By the way, this is where the great empiricist thinker David Hume rests in peace (Calton Hill). Personally, I’m more of a rationalism-oriented Spinozist though.

For some reason I can’t explain burying grounds attract me (especially at night), even though I’m not at all fascinated by death. No, I don’t I have any other morbid hobbies either. I don’t even like horror movies.

Slightly creepy…

Holiday pictures of Crete
